Central Québec School Board Shines – 2011 Uniform Exams
Québec, Monday, October 15th, 2012 – The Central Québec School Board (CQSB) was been informed that the results of the Ministère de l’Éducation, du Loisir et du Sports’ (MELS) 2011 Uniform Exams identifies CQSB as having obtained the highest success rate amongst the nine English School Boards of the province, and this, for the fourth consecutive year! Our success rate is 96.5% up from last year’s rate of 95.7%! The good news doesn’t stop there, amongst all the school boards in the province (English and French public schools) we rank second!!!! The MELS Uniform Exams include English Language Arts, French Second Language and French Mother Tongue.
The members of the Council of Commissioners along with the members of the Administrative Council wish to extend, to each and every member of our personnel, their heartfelt gratitude and congratulations for these very telling results. We all have a great deal to be proud of!
An achievement such as this can only be accomplished with the participation of all our staff (teachers, support staff, consultants, professionals and administrators). Through our shared belief, which is our students’ will to succeed, the CQSB has been able to obtain a success rate that speaks volumes.
Our School Board has been consistent in our position as an educational leader and in our quest to increase student success over the past twelve years. We should all be proud of this achievement.
Our level of success is also a result of the implementation of our Partnership Agreement signed with the MELS along with the indicators and targets that are part of our Strategic Plan. In addition, each of our schools and centre sign an annual Management and Educational Success Agreement with the School Board. These tools enable us to form a clear vision when it comes to attaining our goals.
In closing, we have always felt that our small-school atmosphere, the dedication of our staff, the involvement of our school communities and the ever-present feeling of belonging shared by all continue to play a pivotal role in the success of our students.
Once again, congratulations on a job well done.
